This was dodgyly added, that is without much discussion and therefore without 
much thought about the consequences. Actually a live performance (and I know of 
several such cases, even live covers of albums) is a special case of another 
recording of an album and therefore should use the OtherVersionRelationshipType 
like tracks do. I had proposed adding attributes to it in the past, like 
"live", "acoustic", "studio" (a song might have been first played live only), 
Also I still think that OtherVersionRelationshipType should be renamed, see the 
discussion section on its wiki page. :)

Disagree for the reasons above.
